Before this whole idea of the world ending surfaced, life was already hard. It’s no surprise. So then why now are people blaming the hardships of life on the soon to be ‘end’ of all we know?
Life was already hard. People experienced loss. People saw evil. People participated in evil. People are evil.
Life was already hard. We’ve been through 44 different presidents. They’ve all had their problems. This isn’t the worst of times. Life was already hard.
We’ve fought a hard long battle. This world has been around for too many years. It’s got a strong foundation. I’m certain that it’s going to take more than a few rumors to break it.
Life was already hard. Life was already devastating. Life was already a mountain we weren’t prepared to climb but did anyway, because at the end of the day we know it’s worth it to keep going. And for those who can’t find the strength to face tomorrow — their memory finds life. And for those who are unwillingly unable to participate in life — they’ve got something better in store.
The point is…we all need something to look forward to because life is hard. So maybe the excitement of the world “ending” was enough for some of us to live a little more each day and not take the simple things for granted and to tell the people we love that…we adore them.
I know I’ve taken the time to let my loved ones know how much they mean to me.
Here’s to a new year full of action.
And telling people they matter.
